We conclude our series showcasing listener submissions with a snippet from Smt. K. S. Vasanthalakshmi from New Delhi, India. Her submission is the Muthuswami Dikshitar Navagraha kriti "Brihaspate Tarapate", in the raaga Atana. Vidya elaborates on the meaning of this song and shares a high-level overview on the group of songs commonly referred to as the Navagraha kritis. We would like to thank each of our listener contributors for their enthusiastic participation in this sub-series.
